Sapere Art is developed by Gary W. Marr, himself an emerging artist who prefers to go with the flow, use varied mediums, change genres from day to day and not follow instructors’ suggestions, but people say he has a great eye
A former 30 year veteran of catering and visual design in special events and meeting planning, Gary is taking his past experience, adding his passions in design, helping others and art and wishes to surpass even his own dreams.
Gary paints intuitively or from inspiration, ranging from highly detailed to modern and contemporary as well as encompassing a broad and contemporary palette. Mediums used run the gamut in paint, pastel, charcoal and graphite...with a new interest in metal. Gary also has designed all graphics, this web site and all advertising .
He is joined by hand selected Artists from the vast artistic communities of Chicago and the Midwest, and selected just for being different, a need to be seen , pushing their talents, and for being “good people”.
To provide talented artists to our clients, as well as donating a percentage of profits to non-profit organizations in the areas of HIV/AIDS, Alcohol and Substance Abuse and those who promote sustainable agriculture and “Farm to Table” concepts to provide healthier foods for all Americans.
Its not worth it if you can’t make a difference to the world we live in and peoples’ in our lives. Besides that - its about learning something new, having the courage to learn it, and having a blast along the way!
